Bladestorm: Nightmare is a historical game with evil Joan of Arc and dragons

I didn't play 2007's Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War, but I might play Bladestorm: Nightmare, an expanded version of the real-time tactics game for PS3, PS4, and Xbox One. The core remains the same -- you still side with ...

Holy summoned triceratops, Lost Ark looks fantastic

The video above is a little on the long side, but it is worth watching. It usually takes a lot to get me interested in anything fantasy-themed (more like Bored of the Rings, right?), but Lost Ark looks like it might be the e...

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor looks not so good on Xbox 360 and PS3

I completely forgot Monolith was working on last-generation ports of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The studio delayed the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game to ... today. It's available for a full $59.99...

Review: LittleBigPlanet 3 photo
Review: LittleBigPlanet 3
by Chris Carter

Back in 2008, LittleBigPlanet was a staple in the Carter household for a good year. It was tough to put down as we earned a full 100% completion rate, and creating levels for each other was a joy. Floaty physics hate be damned, not every level was a Super Mario Bros. clone.

When the sequel hit though, it didn't have a whole lot that was new about it to entice us further, and it fell by the wayside. Similarly, LittleBigPlanet 3 doesn't shake things up from the core formula, but the sheer commitment to keeping the level-building platform intact after all these years is something special.

Eiji Aonuma reveals Twili Midna character for upcoming Hyrule Warriors DLC

Hyrule Warriors is still one of my favorite games of 2014, and the DLC so far has been a large part of why I keep playing it. We've already seen the "Master Quest" DLC, but now Nintendo's Eiji Aonuma has spilled the bean...

Hyrule Warriors' amiibo support is boring

Nintendo has explained which amiibo toys do what in Hyrule Warriors and, frankly, the game's support for the near-field communication figurines is rather dull. With Link (or Toon Link), players can get the Spinner weapon from...

Ubisoft outlines the bugs it's killing with third Assassin's Creed Unity patch

Less than a week after release, Ubisoft's already planning and detailing the third of Assassin's Creed Unity's patches. This update is said to be "larger in scope" than the previous patches, and will focus on several problema...

Devolver Digital's new title Crossing Souls looks like an '80s cartoon

Part of me wishes that a game called Crossing Souls would be an Animal Crossing/Dark Souls crossover, but I am still pretty pleased with how Crossing Souls actually looks anyway. Will we ever get sick of the totally tubular ...

Far Cry 4's alternate ending only takes a half hour to access

Alternate endings are a fascinating way to put a non-canonical spin on the tales that we know and love. Sometimes it's a silly and light-hearted Pentagon piefight. Others are grim, like Dante taking a bullet to the chest on ...

Review: Far Cry 4
by Chris Carter

Far Cry 3 was one of my favorite games of 2012. It didn't stray too far from the normal sandbox conventions set before it, but gallivanting around beautiful island vistas and flying about with wingsuits was pretty damn fun.

For some that wasn't enough, though, and for those folks, Far Cry 4 won't be enough either. But for me, it's still pretty damn fun.

Review: Assassin's Creed Rogue photo
Review: Assassin's Creed Rogue
by Brett Makedonski

Ever since its 2007 debut, the Assassin's Creed franchise has been presented as a one-sided affair. Chronicling the persistent struggle between the Assassins and the Templars, Ubisoft has always framed the story casting the former in a positive light. Assassin's Creed Rogue has a new take on that formula, which, in some ways, makes it the most refreshing, thought-provoking, and introspective installment in the series to date.

Unfortunately, it's also the laziest.

The action game, developed by Guilty Gear and BlazBlue developer Arc System Works, is said to feature four-player co-op and luchadores. Yes, you'll be able to beat up monsters with the power of friendship and lucha libre moves. Sounds like a romp.

Just Cause 3 won't have in-game microtransactions, promises Avalanche

Just Cause 3 is officially happening. If that confirmation doesn't brighten your day, you must have skipped the last installment, which was stupid, awesome, and one of the best videogame sandboxes ever created. Speaking of, J...

I guess that WAS Just Cause 3: Coming to Xbox, PS4, PC 2015

We recently saw screenshots of something purporting to be Just Cause 3. Seems likely they were. You know what the first damn thing I noticed in the Game Informer Just Cause 3 cover announcement? It wasn't the hookshot or...

Review: Assassin's Creed Unity
by Chris Carter

Assassin's Creed IV was a turning point for the series. While a lot of fans were disappointed by the pointless Revelations and the polarizing Assassin's Creed III, Black Flag delivered everything you could possibly want from Ubisoft, and then some. Fans embarked on quite the adventure with Edward Kenway, and many newcomers even described it as "a pirate game that happens to be Assassin's Creed."

Assassin's Creed Unity doesn't live up to the new standard set by Black Flag, but it's a journey worth taking if you're already into the series, and proves that the franchise is still sustainable.
